If you apply without your parents providing their income information then SFE will assume that your family is wealthy and you will only get the basic loan amount.

It’s possible to be classed as an independent student if you are estranged from your parents - but for that you need someone (a teacher or social worker) to provide evidence that you are estranged with no contact for over 12 months. So you would need to move out to a job/benefits for a gap year before you would be able to get the full loan.

Hi,

We do not need your parents income details for you to apply for finance. Every student can apply for the basic funding without their parents income details.

Thanks, Chanel
